I was a student of San Francisco City College, Photography Dept. I had the most fun learning from the best instructor, Robert Nishihira (aka Nish). I believe its the photojournalist who connects the viewer with the common everyday images and gives them a voice.
I live in Emeryville Ca. where I've had the honor of participating in the annual city Art Exhibition. One of my first bodies of works was a collection of store-front churches I found nestled between salons and liquor stores.
